RISMEDIA, May 11, 2011-While the costs to feed our families continue to rise, the solutions being put forth by many so-called experts and government agencies could be placing our health in even greater jeopardy. It's been estimated that by 2050 there will be an additional three billion people on our planet, putting a greater strain on our food supply. To alleviate this burden there has been a push for science to play a greater role in food production, more specifically biotechnology and nanotechnology.
While technology has brought forth many advances in our world, its involvement in food production should not just be accepted with open arms. Advocates may boast of greater crop production and the development of insect and disease-resistant plants, but they have yet to address the effects this technology has had on the nutritional value of the fruits and vegetables being grown. Knowing that the big businesses who will benefit from the implementation of these technologies aren't about to tackle an issue that could cost them billions, OffTheGridNews.net has published their own special report, Food Shock: Why 2011 Could Be The Most Important Year Ever To Plant A Family Garden, which not only describes the threats presented by these "advancements" but also provides a real alternative to solving the food supply problem and the rising costs of fruits and vegetables.
Authored by noted survivalist Bill Heid along with television/radio personality Brian Brawdy, the "Food Shock" report-offered at no cost to those who sign up for the free weekly newsletter from OffTheGridNews.net-carefully details the events that have put us in such a perilous position in relation to our food supply and explains why popular solutions that are being floated about by "experts" simply won't solve the problem, and in fact could do more harm.
We have already seen this come to light as genetically modified fruits and vegetables-the product of science-fail to deliver the same nutritional value found in naturally grown fruits and vegetables. Of course what the "experts" have argued is that while naturally grown fruits and vegetables may be better, they simply aren't realistic.
This is the real value of the "Food Shock" report as it provides the reader with the understanding that they are capable of growing their own fruits and vegetables in a home garden, something that has been done since man began walking the earth. With a home garden a family not only has their own healthy fruits and vegetables growing right in their back yard, they are also saving a great deal of money.
